This part of my blog is all about the things I collect or the things I make myself. I love so many things, I paint and draw and want to learn oils and pastels. I knit and crochet but want to learn tatting. I embroider and can turn my hand to most things given a chance. So much still to learn and do. I live in hope of some day reading all my books, learning all I want to learn and now I am learning to blog. You will often find my original poems, poor as they are I offer them here. I also appreciate other people art and will feature things I find that I have enjoyed. That includes pictures of fairies and fantasy or maybe just anything beautiful.
I try to use my own photo's as much as possible, sometimes I borrow from the web. If I inadvertently use your picture without giving credit, please do let me know and I will either credit or remove it, I hope you will do the same with mine.
If you wish to leave comments on my blog you can do that by joining google if you do not have a blog yourself, please comment if you can I appreciate that.

A couple more watercolours................
I am sharing a few of my watercolours. I do not pretend to be good at this but I love the medium. I love the surprises that I get sometimes. Sometimes not so much. The first one is just a northern Michigan shore scene. I was never really happy with it, but here it is anyway. The next one was a class I took. The idea was to do the back fill. The shadows under the bushes. There were some parts of this one that came out OK. Close up of the shadows under the bushes. There is a name for this but I cant think of it, maybe negative painting? This next one is not a good picture at all but what I was working on was the clouds and I did like how that turned out. close up of sky I would like to get back into painting before I loose what I have learned. I do like other forms of painting. Acrylics Painting on wood and other things is fun. I am working more on drawing and using crayons at the moment as its easier with having Tristen around.
